The Honey Tree Preschool is excited to celebrate seven successful years of operation by creating a welcoming, relaxed, fun and friendly learning environment where children feel safe and nutured while instilling "a love for learning within the children". The Honey Tree was the first Centre in the local area to achieve an EXCEEDING RATING for our innovative learning programs focusing on numeracy and literacy.
At the Honey Tree Preschool we pride ourselves on structured routines and school readiness programs to enable children the best start for Kindergarten.
We would especially like to thank the fantastic staff and families for their support and we look forward to another wonderful year of fun and learning.
